Published by Veenman Publishers.
Edited by Marietta de Vries, Koos Breukel. Text by Wim van Sinderen.
This slightly oversized volume is composed of 55 powerful black-and-white portraits by the Dutch photographer Koos Breukel, all of internationally renowned photographers like Richard Avedon, Robert Frank and Rineke Dijkstra--alongside a major work, in color or black-and-white, by each of the artists who were photographed. Thus Dennis Hopper’s portrait is followed by a double-page spread of a biker couple, and Hellen van Meene’s is preceded by a beautiful, adolescent redhead wearing a too-large camisole--looking over her shoulder and bathed in Vermeer-ish light. Made over the course of 15 years, this series collects all of Breukel’s greatest heroes, who willingly sat for his 8 x 10 camera. Other featured artists include Ron Galella, Teun Hocks, Inez van Lamsweerde, Daido Moriyama, Arno Nollen, the Starn twins and a veritable who’s who of Dutch twentieth-century photography.
